INTRODUCTION 



to 



Catalogue Issued in 1877 



The person who made the collection of ancient and modern 
coins and medals in the cases numbered from one to twenty- 
eight inclusive, in the following catalogue, is Dr. Charles 
Spiers, a resident of California since 1849, and recently elected 
a member of the Society of CaUfornia Pioneers. He is now in 
his seventy-seventh year, and has been a coin collector since he 
was fourteen years of age. With him it has been a labor of 
love. He was born and reared in Mrginia, and from his boy- 
hood has taken a deep interest in the collection of rare and 
curious coins. Whenever a specimen came into his hands it 
incited a desire to study the history of the period and visit the 
country where it was coined. In pursuit of this pleasure he has 
visited, in the last forty j^ears, nearly all the European govern- 
ments, and also China, Japan, Australia, Central and South 
America — in fact, almost every country which can boast of a 
metallic currency as a representative of its civilization. 

We know that coins have been for nearly three thousand 
years the representatives of certain values and the medium of 
exchange between different nations; that medals, for the same 
length of time, have been the emblems issued by different gov- 
ernments and various authorities, to commemorate some impor- 
tant event in history or to ennoble and perpetuate acts of daring, 
courage and humanity. The study of these coins and medals is 
the study of ancient and modern history. They bring us in 
contact with the prominent rulers of the world, and show us the 
rise and fall of kingdoms and empires, of liberal and despotic 
governments, in the progress of numismatic science. Hence the 
Doctor has become not only an extensive traveler, in the

4 INTRODUCTION 

pursuit of rare and curious coins, but also an exact historian; 
and in these silent metallic emblems he cannot only scan the 
present, but 

"Read the long records of a distant age." 

Like all men who make some subject a specialty of their 
lives, Doctor Spiers is an enthusiast upon this subject of speci- 
men coin collection, and, from having been so long engaged 
in it, has grown to be an unsurpassed expert. Thus we have 
surety that every coin mentioned in this catalogue is just as 
represented. They were not collected for sale or speculation. 

In addition to the European and American coinage of inter- 
mediate and modern civilization, are specimens of ancient Phoe- 
nicia, Persia, Assyria, Greece, Egypt, Judea, Rome, Carthage, 
of the Saracenic empire, and of the more eastern Asiatics, 
including those seemingly ever living nations, China and Japan. 

The following catalogue was prepared by Dr. Spiers, and 
differs, in some particulars, from the usual methods of cata- 
loguing coins. They are not classified in the old style, but 
placed in glass-covered cases, on black velvet ground, according 
to size, without regard to nationality or date, so as to preserve 
a uniformity in the cases. Each case and coin being numbered, 
a description will be readily found in the printed list. 

The orthography authorized by the government at the time 
these coins and medals were issued is copied in the catalogue. 

Various opinions of coin experts and numismatologists 
could be adduced as to the value of this collection, but it is 
considered only necessary to give the opinion of Dr. Linderman, 
the Director of the United States Mint. 

At the request of Wm. S. O'Brien, Esq., on behalf of the 
committee on coins. Dr. Linderman, while in San Francisco 
last January, examined this collection, then at Pioneer Hall. 
The Doctor said that "he had seen the numismatic collections 
in the mints and museums of Paris and London, and was 
familiar with the extensive collection in the Philadelphia Mint; 
but he pronounced this collection as surpassing, in rarity, 
antiqueness, and beauty of specimens, any collection he had 
ever seen. He expressed the opinion that such a rare and 
valuable collection ought to be secured by the United States 
Government, and placed in the mint at San Francisco, as this 
establishment is now one of the most important in the world." 

The appreciation in the value of coins is one of the most 
singular features in history. Why should a silver coin that is 
known to be worth only one hundred cents in copper, sell 
for a hundred or a thousand times its intrinsic value? For 
example, case number 28 contains 52 silver dollars, representing 
every coinage of the silver dollar by our Government since 
1794 to the present time. The coinage of ISO-l is the rarest

and most valuable. The coin quotation sales show that this 
dollar has sold at auction at five different times within the 
last sixteen vears at prices as follows: $325, $440, $860, 
$700, and $1,400. 

Nearly every government in Europe and Asia has a collection 
of coins. 

• Our Government has no collection at Washington City. 
There are many private collections in the United States, and 
this one made b}^ Dr. Spiers is considered one of the best and 
most desirable. It is the result of a lifetime of labor and 
travel. 

The Doctor has transferred this collection to the Pioneers, 
considering the transfer entirely in the nature of a donation. 

Knowing that Pioneer Hall is not fire-proof, the Committee 
on Coins, pursuant to instruction from the Board of Directors, 
obtained permission from General La Grange, the present 
Superintendent of the United States ]\Iint in this city, to deposit 
this collection temporarily in the mint for safe keeping. A 
room was very kindly appropriated for their use, where they 
can be seen b}'' the Pioneers and the public during office hours. 

The coins in the cases numbered from 29 to 36 inclusive, 
belonged to the Pioneers before the acquisition of the Spiers 
collection. 

By order of the Society of California Pioneers. 
San Francisco, July 26th, 1877. 



INTRODUCTION 

to Edition of 1909 



The introduction to the catalogue issued in 1877 refers only 
to the collection of Dr. Spiers, which Dr. Linderman, for 
years Director of the Mint, stated was the finest collection he 
had ever seen. 

Since that time the large collection of C. T. Ward, Jr., and 
other smaller collections have been added. 

A well known expert after examining the collection in 1908, 
stated that a good many of the coins were the only ones of 
their kind in existence.
